Lyric: “I'm in the hall already, on the wall already/I’m a work of art, I'm a Warhol already.”

Complex says: It might seem like a stretch for Jay-Z to compare himself to Warhol but consider this: Both Warhol and Jigga were often criticized for embracing consumerism. In fact, in the later part of his career, Warhol became more of an entrepreneur than an artist and was even dubbed a “business artist.” In other words, he wasn’t a businessman, he was a business, man.
